that is operating out there on a network. it's our government infrastructure, our public infrastructure, water, the electricity grid. the grid is a massive concern right now. this issue, this cybersecurity, cyber hacking, theft of information, interference with our systems, it doesn't get the sort of coverage that it needs to get. it's still as a threat to the u.s. national security interests. it's still kind of lurking there in the shadows because of course we've been focused on the war on terror, on iran, on syria, you know, the arab spring, and so it does not get the coverage. i'm very glad that you guys are leading with this story. connell: it also could be -- you are ight about the angle then which is what we led with today about the war on terror and the possible retaliation for this video and everything else, but adam brought up the idea -- and this has been in the news this week of our relationship with china and this company 60 minutes focused on over the weekend, and you have another company zte which the house pommittee yesterday talked about. this is a murky area because obviously
objects to. there is no role for the government to be sort of people by race. >> the university of texas of austin's has what? guest: they say the supreme court has endorsed education and diversity as a compelling goal for the government and an exception to the usual rule that the government should not be classified people by race. it is true, and a 5-4 decision, the supreme court said that, but the key vote, sandra day o'connor, has retired, replaced by a more conservative judge, samuel alito, so in that they give us a new result. >> what is the result of this, who will hear it, who will decide? guest: only eight justices will decide. elena kagan is reduced from oregon and the case as a former u.s. solicitor general. it is a good bet the four more conservative justices, if not to strike an entirely, will limit the use of race. the three more liberal ones will go the other way. as usual, anthony kennedy will hold the deciding vote. on the one hand, he has said there have been some positive things about the importance of diversity. on the other hand, he has never voted to make sure that a
to the cyber threat requires the right policies and organizations across the federal government. for the past year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security a
years, we have had revenues coming into the federal government at a level around 15% of gdp. that is a 60-year low. since 1960, we have never had a balanced budget in a year when revenues were less than 18% of gdp. in 2001, the last year we had a surplus, revenues were at 19.5% of gdp. we have a revenue problem. in the tax reform to sell it. some on the left have suggested corporate tax reform could be a source for new revenue but here i disagree. to preserve our international competitiveness, it is imperative we seek to reduce the corporate rate from 35% and do it on a revenue-neutral basis. this will boost growth and encourage more companies to reinvest in the united states. corporate tax reform, under the leadership of chairman baucus senator hatch should be treated separately from our attempt to get a handle on the deficit. but when it comes to the individual side of the code, our approach must be different. in this part of reform, the new money we collect from broadening the tax base cannot all be applied to prepare -- to reducing rates or else we will not get enough re

a compelling government interest in creating a diverse student body, diversity that can enrich the student body. all good stuff, right? a white students denied admission in 2008 sued the university saying it's process was not tailored narrowly enough that it created reverse discrimination denied her equal protection under the constitution. the university says the process is narrow enough and works. the questions today, they sounded to split along ideological lines. supporters worry that this more conservative court could use this case to limit affirmative action programs not just an in education but also business and government. cheryl: peter barnes, thank you very much. adam shapiro with the banks being targeted by cyber attacks. >> we have seen increased traffic today and have experienced the management and service availability but declined additional comment at this time. yesterday capital one, today suntrust, the same group tied to islamic terrorist saying they would after jpmorgan chase and bank of america. tomorrow, regions financial. issue a statement instead we take online security seri
this in syria. so something going on as we speak. the u.s. government did this with libya. basically arming the opposition. and you know, your men ri's men ri is only my friend for so long. is that a wise approach? >> no. i have spent time on this issue. there's no doubt providing nonlethal communication support is extraordinary important and secretary clinton announced massive amount of humanitarian assistance and ku dos to the administration for doing that. the real problem here is that there's this struggle within the romney campaign itself over syria between neo-conservatives to militarily intervene and those who actually are more reticent and the problem is that mr. romney flip flops between one group and the other and can't quite decide which one is more important. the bottom line, however, for purposes of american interest in the middle east, arming a rag tag group of rebels at this point in time is inconsistent with understanding when's going to emerge of syria in the long run. one of the reasons why i'm reticent is because we don't really know who the rebels are. some of them are a
that government was heavily subsidizing green energies in other industries. u.s. is also subsidized green energy and one international trade attorney who opposes the subsidies altogether says u.s. tariffs will only harm consumers. >> once that is done american consumers will start paying quite a hefty tax on imports of chinese solar panels, at the same time we'll be seeing price increases of the other solar panels. typically china is a price driver in the market and will see all imports and domestic solar panels prices go up. >> united states has stepped up complaints and stainless steel sink, flooring, steel grating, bricks and much more. chinese have responded most notably for u.s. support of the auto industry. also fixed the presidential campaigns. president obama chooses governor romney of sending american jobs to china during his time at bain capital. romney called the present week on china promising stricter and forcing trade practices bowing to label a currency manipulator. some argue stronger rhetoric and tourist will lead to a loss for american consumers and u.s. companies conducting bu
the bombings in beirut, we went back as a government formalized minimum standards. did they or did they not meet those minimum standards. >> neither the buildings in benghazi nor the buildings in tripoli met those standards, nor was there a plan for the next phase of construction what was called the interrim embassy would they meet the standards either. >> reporter: two points were striking in the hearing. there was a real undercurrent of sadness from the witnesses many of whom knew those who were killed in benghazi. and the second there was so many warnings that they felt that an attack on the u.s. consulate by terrorists seemed a foregone conclusion. allison. alisyn: that's right. given all the new information that came to light at the hearings what is the fallout now for the state department? >> reporter: one theme really dominated at the hearing. initial washington was so preoccupied reducing number of american personnel at the consulate and replacing with libyan guards even after a series of attacks on diplomats. for diplomats and security personnel on the ground a terrorist s
's not a question about electoral process. it's about role of government. >> fact checking departments all over this. you know "the new york times," washington post "the daily rundown." >> is that getting to the local media. >> that's not the fault of the media if the voters aren't hearing it. i mean the stuff is in there. "the new york times" is covering it. "the washington post" is covering it, "time" magazine had a cover story on what's up with facts these days in political races and a good story that had a lot of considering debunking of like what's happening. it's not that it's -- we aren't talking abo ing about it, why a voters reacting the way they should. >> we will talk about how voters are reacting to the latest romney high jinx, the ride on the romney carousel after the break. brought to you by the letter "r" while governor romney fires back at team obama over the latest attack ads featuring big bird jimmy fallon conjures memories of another show, mr. romney's neighborhood. >> hello, neighbor. you see this? it's called a wallet. inside of a wallet, that's where money goes. now, do you kno

government can't make a distingsion on race it can do so in school admissions because getting a racially diverse campus provides a better education. that was the court's holding. after the argument today it seems clear the court is not going to go and overrule that precedent but the problem many of the justices had is how do you know when you have enough diversity. the university of texas has an unusual system. it automatically admits anybody who graduates in the top 10% academically of any high school in texas. that gets a fair amount of diversity on campus because many of those schools tend to be racially more uniform, predominantly black or hispanic and tend to get diversity. the problem for perhaps the majority of the justices how do you know when there's enough diversity. what the school says is, we don't want merely diversity in numbers. we want african-american students who are interested in fencing and speaking greek and studying architecture and hispanic students who are great fencers or ballet dancers. we want diversity in other words within the mere racial numbers. and i think
category. >> true. but most people think that a government that's at a record size as a percentage of compete, the government that has doubled in spending in the last ten years, and one that's going to continue to grow that somehow that's a draconian cut in spending i don't think people are going to buy it. the other important point that paul ryan's going to want to make, we've got a serious fiscal problem on hour hands. some people in washington pretend not to notice that but trillion dollar deficits year in and year out, debt that has reached 100% of total economic output this is unsustainable. paul ryan put a plan on the table. you don't have to necessarily agree with every last element in there t. but acknowledge it is a thoughtful, thorough, comprehensive plan that gets our economy growing and puts on a path to balance. where's the president's plan? his plan is so unserious not a single democrat in either the house or the senate voted for it when it was on the for in. >> why did mitt romney run away from the paul ryan budget plan? >> mitt romney put paul ryan on the ticket. th
biden responding to paul ryan's criticism of the government stimulus package. >> he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus money, consider ek money, correct? >> on two occasions we asked for constituents applying for grants. >> what a debate. did biden help the president's case last night, after the president's tepid performance last week? >> right, he was -- he was sort of the polar opposite of the president. if the president had no passion, joe biden had all passion, all the time. and his job last night as we were saying after the debate was to kind of right the ship, the democratic ship. and i think he did that. because for all of the base of the democratic party that was really disenchanted with the president's performance, disappointed, i think joe biden gave them something to root for. i will say that paul ryan also passed a threshold last night, which is that he seemed very credible, very fluent on foreign policy, whic

. official announcement coming out next week from the government. 1.5% to 1.7%, it ain't huge. past few years, let's look at that. benefits increased 3.6% this year because inflation was higher. what's coming next year is better than what happened in 2009 and 2010 when checks didn't go up at all. you want to blame congress but you can't blame congress for this minuscule increase coming next year. cost of living adjustment is based on the consumer price index. cpi measures inflation, e price you pay for things like food and clothing and fuel. if prices are up over the past year, those social security checks go up. and if prices haven't moved or they fall, social security checks stay the same. i guess to sort of put the slamation point sla exclamation point on this, at least they're going up a bit instead of staying the same. >> alison kosik, thank you very much. >>> more people around the country getting sick and dying from a rare meningitis outbreak. dr. gupta make ace starting discovery while into digging as to how this happened. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hu
